A bus driver was fired by the Eden Central School District Friday morning following a recent driving while intoxicated charge.

“I can’t mention the details,” Superintendent Sandra Anzalone said, but she noted that the incident did not occur on district property.

She said the dismissal, which was approved by the board during a special meeting Friday morning, took effect Tuesday for “failure to maintain certification” as part of a contract signed by the employee. The driver’s name was not released.
